“Local tavern, different than the tourist traps”
Review of Kastro

Kastro
Ranked #74 of 84 Restaurants in Ierapetra
Cuisines: Greek
Description: Kastro (Koules), tavern is situated at the end of Ierapetra seaside promenade, just next to the old fortress. The location itself is nice being next to the sea, feeling the sea breeze and also next to the city old fortress. The cuisine is simple but delicious and the most important of all the whole thing has nothing to do with the kitch massive tourism establishments Ierapetra is unfortunately full of. Salads, small fish, kalamaria etc and a lot of local people enjoying their food. No or few tourists, so an opportunity for those who seek the original staff to go to a small, simple greek tavern.

Kastro (koules) is situated on the beach promenade of Ieraperta as most of the town's restaurants. The thing with this tavern is that it is not just another tourist trap, and one can understand that rather quickly by noticing two things: first, no signs with pictures of the dishes, etc, and secondly local people eating their mezedes usually inside the place.
The food is not amazing but it is simple, tasty, close to home made food and you do not feel like being cheated on. The place is very simple too but also pleasant with a view to Ierapetra fortress (actually two steps from it) and the see breeze on your face.
I recommend this place to those who want to try greek/cretan cuisine as usually made in local taverns and not massive tourist traps.
